Kim Parker’s rise to international renown as a designer and artist—her bedding and bath line launched at Bloomingdale’s, and she recently introduced new dinnerware and giftware collections with Spode—is truly the story of the American dream. A promising classical flutist with no formal design education, she hit the streets of New York City with her gorgeous designs, worked her way up, and is now one of the hottest, hippest contemporary designers anywhere. Her signature floral prints have become hugely popular and she’s been profiled in countless design magazines around the world.
